In No. 5 Culture Chanel, Jean-Louis Froment plays homage to the legendary Gabrielle Chanel and her most iconic fragrance.
Designed to complement the exhibit "N Degrees5 Culture Chanel" at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, Froment's tome traces Mademoiselle Chanel's artistic influences and establishes Chanel N Degrees5's integral role in the avant-garde art of the early 20th century.
Able to call Cocteau and Dali friends, Gabrielle Chanel lived in the heart of Parisian modernist movements.
No. 5 Culture Chanel reveals the intimate links between Mademoiselle Chanel's fabled fragrance and the rising tide of cubist and surrealist art.
Lavishly designed with stunning photographs and illustrations, No. 5 Culture Chanel offers a glimpse into both the storied Chanel house and the artistic landscape of Paris in the 1920s.
Photographs of Mademoiselle Chanel are displayed alongside the works of Modigliani and Picasso and the writings of Apollinare and Proust.
